BIDDEFORD - Douglas Paul Hooper, 58, of Herring Street, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, May 15, 2017, at the Southern Maine Medical Center, in Biddeford.

Doug was born in Potomac, Md., on June 13, 1958, the son of Donald and Alma Thomas Hooper.

The family moved to Huntsville, Ala., in the summer of 1959; then back to Annapolis, Md., in 1962. In 1965, the family moved to Alma's home town of Ashland, Ky.

In 1968, Don went to New York when his mother died and the family followed a few months later, settling in the Bronx. In 1971, the family moved to Township 24 in rural Maine, halfway between Bangor and Calais. He was a graduate of Narraguagus High School in Harrington, and then the University of Maine in Augusta.

For over 30 years, he was a real estate broker with numerous real estate designations in specialized fields. He presently worked in real estate management, and was currently the sales manager for Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Northeast Real Estate, and as an instructor with Arthur Gary School of Real Estate.

Doug is survived by his daughter, Heather Thomas Uva, of Tulsa, Okla.; and two brothers, Dan and his wife Christine, of Smyrna; and Stephen and his wife Gina, of Limerick. Also surviving are sister-in-law Claudia Rherig, of Plainsboro, N.J., and her two girls, Amanda and Rachel; Dan and Christine's daughter Jennifer; and Stephen's son, Tim.

His hobbies included music and travel.
